Federal Communications Commission Interference Statement
FCC Part 15
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: 1. Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. 2. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. 3. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. 4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio technician for help.

FCC Caution This equipment must be installed and operated in accordance with provided instructions, and a minimum of 20 cm of space (approx. 8 inches) must be provided between any computer-mounted antenna and a person’s body (excluding hands, wrists and feet) during wireless modes of operation. This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference; and (2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the authority to operate the equipment.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Radiation Exposure Statement This equipment complies with FCC radiation exposure set forth for an uncontrolled environment. In order to avoid the possibility of exceeding the FCC radio frequency exposure limits, human proximity to the antenna shall not be less than 20 cm (8 inches) during normal operation. The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. The equipment version marketed in the U.S. is restricted to usage of channels 1-11 only.

R&TTE Compliance Statement
This equipment complies with all the requirements of Directive 1999/5/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of March 9, 1999, on radio equipment and telecommunication terminal equipment and the mutual recognition of their conformity (R&TTE). The R&TTE Directive repeals and replaces in the directive 98/13/EEC (Telecommunications Terminal Equipment and Satellite Earth Station Equipment) as of April 8, 2000.

Safety This equipment is designed with the utmost care for the safety of those who install and use it. However, special attention must be paid to the dangers of electric shock and static electricity when working with electrical equipment. All guidelines of this and of the computer manufacturer must therefore be allowed at all times to ensure the safe use of the equipment.

EU Countries Intended for Use The ETSI version of this device is intended for home and office use in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The ETSI version of this device is also authorized for use in EFTA member states Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

Access point: A access point is an intelligent network device that forwards packets between different networks based on network layer address information such as IP addresses. the interpretation of their behavior is well defined and can be made objectively. Below is a list of common applications and protocol/port numbers: Application Telnet FTP SMTP POP3 H. PPPoE relies on two widely accepted standards.255. without confusion or misunderstanding. PPPoE is for Ethernet connections. which may be a part of the TCP/IP information provided by your ISP.g. 255. It is a communications protocol for transmitting information over Ethernet between different manufacturers Protocol: A protocol is a set of rules for interaction agreed upon between multiple parties so that when they interface with each other based on such a protocol. is a set of four numbers (e. Ethernet and the Point-to-Point Protocol. Point-to-Point Protocol is a secure data transmission method originally created for dial-up connections.Port: Network Clients (LAN PC) uses port numbers to distinguish one network application/protocol over another.0) configured 73 .. Subnet Mask: A subnet mask.

TCP/IP is the standard protocol for data transmission over the Internet. Web-based management Graphical User Interface (GUI): Many devices support a graphical user interface that is based on the web browser. countries). TCP performs proper error detection and error recovery. and thus is reliable. WAN: Wide Area Network is a network that connects computers located in geographically separate areas (e.like an IP address. different buildings. It is used to create IP address numbers used only within a particular network (as opposed to valid IP address numbers recognized by the Internet. UDP on the other hand is not reliable. This means the user can use the familiar Netscape or Microsoft Internet Explorer to Control/configure or monitor the device being managed.. They both run on top of the IP (Internet Protocol). TCP/IP. UDP: Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and Unreliable Datagram Protocol (UDP). Both TCP and UDP are transport layer protocol. which must be assigned by InterNIC). The Internet is a wide area network.g. cities. a network layer protocol. 74 .
